Title: 'Corpus linguistic work on Black South African English'
Author: Bertusvan Rooy
Linguistic Field: 'Text/Corpus Linguistics'
Abstract: Black South African English (henceforth BSAfE) has received more attention from corpus linguists than any other variety in the country. In the early 2000s, two corpus projects were initiated more or less simultaneously: the corpus of spoken Xhosa-English, compiled by Vivian de Klerk at Rhodes University, and the Tswana Learner English corpus that I compiled. A number of further corpora have also been compiled in the more recent past, many of which are available in the public domain for research purposes.
